The gardening team, according to OSD Prakash, has made special efforts to keep the colour theme of flowers a predominant yellow and white this year.
There will be special enclosures like the 'spiritual garden' with trees like 'Rudraksh', 'Chandan', 'Hina', 'Kadamba', 'Banyan', 'Peepal' and Date Palm for visitors. For those who take special interest in herbs and aromatic plants, an exclusive area has also been prepared.
The herbal and Bonsai gardens -- unique as their names -- will add to the charm of the overall layout of more than 55 species of flowers that constitute the landscape of the gardens which derive inspiration from European, British and Mughal styles of flower laying.
The musical fountain in the gardens will play tunes of Shehnai and also Vande Mataram in synchronisation with light and sound effect.
Due to security reasons, visitors will not be allowed to carry water bottles, other baggages, camera and cell phones during their visit to the gardens.
